Talent Booking Apps
A talent booking app is an app for your mobile device that allows individuals and venues to book talent directly, without going through a talent agent or manager. Booking apps are efficient and transparent. They streamline the process of securing and paying performers. You can manage all of your talent bookings through one simple app. You will save time and avoid possible headaches or confrontations that might arise from the payment process.
Using the Special Guest app as an example, here are the easy steps from setting up your account, to finding, booking, and paying talent.
Step 1: Signing Up
You have two options for signing up with the booking app. You can contact the booking agency directly and provide a few brief details to one of the Special Guest team members. Taking the information you give them, they will find and book the talent for your event.
Or, you can sign yourself up. Then you will be able to find and book the talent on demand.
Step 2: Talent Category
Once you have signed up with the booking app, you can start browsing the various talents that are available. Choose the talent category you are interested in. The categories are numerous; there are musicians, magicians, actors, comedians, speakers, specialty acts, as so many more.
Once you have decided on the type of talent you wish to hire, you can choose your city, state, and date of your event.
Step 3: Search
Now that you've chosen the type of talent you want to hire, you can begin searching. Each talent has a bio, videos, and reviews of previous performances from people who have hired them. The reviews are extra helpful in determining whether a performer is easy to work with and how they perform live.
Step 4: Booking
Once you have chosen your performer, you are ready to inquire. You can share some details about your event to get an idea of the performer's availability and pricing. When you are ready to hire, all you need to do is provide payment to reserve your performer.
Step 5: The Logistics
Once you book your performer, the app handles all of the logistics, including payment. The app secures the talent for your event and allows you to communicate directly with the performer in terms of specifics, such as load-in time, what - if any - equipment you have versus what they need to bring, etc. It also allows you to rate and review the talent after the performance.
With the innovative talent booking apps available online, booking your next live event is easier and more convenient than ever.
